“Two Rivers” Film and Discussion led by Paula Palmer 12 - 2 pm
The one-hour documentary “Two Rivers” tells the story of a rural community in Washington state that initiated a process of dialogue between Native and non-Native residents. As the non-Natives learned the real history of the land and its consequences for the region’s original inhabitants, they undertook some very significant actions toward reconciliation and healing. We can be challenged and inspired by their example and begin to take steps toward right relationship with Native peoples in our own community.
